The #Hashtag Project

The #Hashtag Project is a way for artists to help each other grow our Instagram audiences while at the same time discover new artists to connect with, share ideas and be inspired by one another. 

This entire experience is built on community involvement! The #Hashtag Project is simply a compilation of hashtags that your fellow artists use on Instagram to build their audiences. The intent is to build a list of hashtags that we can all use with our own posts that are more targeted to our audiences for fostering growth in not only our individual followers or likes, but to cultivate the artist community on Instagram as well.
